Who and what we do

About us

Who is?

Labrecycling is a Dutch company, which was founded in 2005 by Herwin Smit. Herwin has years of experience in the laboratory world. Throughout the years, he has experienced that many laboratory instruments are thrown away after a few years of service. This, of course, is an eternal waste. So he decided to buy old chromatography instruments and give them a second life. Over the years, he has built up contacts with pharmacists, hospitals, R&D laboratories, drinking water companies, food & chemical industry and commercial laboratories from various countries such as: Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland. Here he buys used chromatography instruments and sells them as: used & working or reconditioned. Our customers are mostly located in Africa, Middle East, Asia and South America.
